SUMMER 1586 

Weekend Unites 
Graduates & Alumnae 


A highlight of the day was the Parade 
of Classes across campus led by a bag- 
piper. Dr. Ralph Mawdsley, of Lynch- 
burg, Virginia, and Vickie Simons '76, 
Homecoming Queen. The reunion 
classes and the Seniors, dressed in their 
class colors, carrying banners, signs, and 
balloons, and singing their class songs 
entertained a large audience as they 
marched to Page Terrace for the National 
Alumnae Association meeting. 

The agenda of the Alumnae Associ- 
ation meeting included the election of 
officers and new members to tfae Alum- 
nae Board, recognition of reunion class 
chairmen, presentation of reunion class 
gifts, and attendance awards. 

The Class of 1936 won the award for 
having the highest percentage of its 
members attending their reunion with 
23.8%. With 19 classmates, they also 
had the largest number of aiummae ever 
attending a 30th reunion celebration. 

The tenth reunion class. 1976, num- 
bering 39, won the award for the largest 
number of class members present. 

In addition to reunion class gifts by the 
Classes of 1976, 1961, and 1936, two 
special class gifts were presented. 

Pam McCain Pearce of Charleston, 
South Carolina, representing the Qass of 
198 1 , presented their Annual Fund gift in 
memory of Julia Martin Holland, a class- 
mate who was killed in a car accident last 

On behalf of the Qass of 1 963 , Carpie 
Gould Coulboum presented a check for 
510,000 in memory of Emily Wirsing 
Kelly. (See related story page 7) 


Sunny skies, brightly colored bal- 
loons, and a feeling of celebration filled 
the campus for Alumnae Homecoming 
and Commencement Weekend. Over 
300 alumnae and fnends representing ten 
reunion classes enjoyed the weekend ac- 
tivities May 30-June 1 . 

Alumnae and their families began ar- 
riving Friday afternoon, registering at 
the Welcome Tent near Hunt HaU. 

A wine and cheese rendezvous oc- 
curred that afternoon at the Alumnae 
House, where former students and fac- 
ulty members gathered for three hours of 
serious catching up. 

An enormous buffet supper awaited 
participants in the Student Activities 
Center, where seating was arranged by 
class and alumnae visited among them- 
selves and members of the faculty and 

Nineteen alumnae, students, and 
guests started the Saturday morning ac- 
tivities with the fourth armual Baldwin 
Run. This year's race included both a 
three-mile run and a one-mile run/walk. 
Winners were Patsy Trevillian '86, 
Women's 3-K; Jan Malinowski, husband 
of Liz Laffitte Malinowski '81, Men's 
3-K; and Ca±erine Bogden Haroney '81 
and Sylvia Back Lynn '83, one-mile 

The classrooms in Deming Fine Arts 
Center were filled for the "Saturday 
Mormng Live" seminars. Dr. Kenneth 
Keller, associate professor of history, 
gave a lecture and slide presentation on 
the ever-popular History of Mary Bald- 

Dr. John Mehner, professor of biol- 
ogy, delighted former ornithology stu- 
dents with his presentation on "Birds of 
the Shenandoah Valley." 


Two hundred and s x degrees were 
conferred upon Mary BaJdw n s Class of 
1986 dunng the 44th Commencement 
Exercises June I on Page Terrace. 

Karen Brammer Austin '72 delivered 
an animated, memorable commence- 
ment address to the graduates and a 
crowd estimated at close to 900. 

Ms. Austin, an actress who works 
frequently in television, film, and on the 
stage, urged the graduating seniors to 
follow their individual passions. 

"1 think each person has a unique and 
essential passion," she told the gradu- 
ating seniors. "It Is an innermost com- 
pulsion bom of a purpose larger than 
ourselves, out of which we contribute to 
the world and therein find satisfaction 
and tme success. Passion is the source of 
will and discipline and commitment. It 
will even override the big one: inde- 

"Taking nsks may be uncomfortable, 
but don't look for comfort in this 
world," said Ms. Austin. "Risk sepa- 
rates the mundane from the brilliant. 
That's why this college will continue to 
succeed. It takes risks in its develop- 

The graduates were told to define suc- 
cess on their own terms, and not to fear 
the possibility of failure. 

"A life spent m making mistakes is 
not only more honorable, but more use- 
ful than domg nothing," she said, quot- 
ing a line from George Bernard Shaw 
which seemed to particularly please the 

"Celebrate our passion, risk failure — 
it may be demanding, but you'll be fully 
alive and awake. 

"Life begets life; energy creates en- 
ergy; it is by spending oneself that one 
becomes rich. 

"Never give up, for you have a gift to 
give the world," she concluded. "What 
beckons you today is the creative power 
of the unknown." 


Cynthia Haidenby Tyson was swom in 
as the eighth president of Mary Baldwin 
College May 10 in a beautiful day of 
solemn ceremony and joyful celebration- 
Representatives of colleges and uni- 
versities from all over the nation joined 
special guests, spectators, and members 
of the MBC community for the morning 
ceremony in front of the Martha S. 
Grafton Library. 

President Tyson, clearly enjoying her- 
self, delivered an inaugural address that 
cited the College's willingness and abil- 
ity to creatively meet challenges, in the 
past and in the present. 

She gave her audience a history les- 
son, observing four key moments in the 
College's history. 

"When Mary Julia Baldwin died on 
July 1, 1897. a vacuum of leadership 
resulted," said the President. The Col- 
lege rebounded, however, embarking on 
an ambitious modernization program and 
approaches to combat declining en- 

"The early twentieth century was no 
longer Mary Julia Baldwin's world, but 
her institution had reached it intact and 
with a new matunty that it had been 
forced to reach m order to cope with a 
changed context," she said. "But the 
crisis, having been endured, had resulted 
in new strength." 

The next crisis, said the president, was 
one of identity when, in 1914, Miss 
Baldwin's seminary faced issues of 
changing curriculum, raising standards, 
and the possibility of becoming a junior 

"What did this College do?" asked 
Dr. Tyson. "It took the difficult and 
most challenging option, it raised stan- 
dards; it defined its mission; it pursued 
an unrelenting purpose of academic 
strength; and the rest became mere 

The Great Depression of the 1930s 
produced another crisis, one of scarce 
resources, said the President. 

Enrollments plunged, retention fell, 
and fund-raising suffered severely, she 
said. These matters were exacerbated by 
the fact that MBC, which had only re- 
cently become a college, had to develop 
new courses and purchase equipment to 
support a demanding curriculum. 

"But, with patience and prudence, the 
College survived," said President Ty- 
son. "Mary Baldwin had a sense of mis- 
sion and determination, evidenced 
through the cooperation of all in its 
community to endure. Endure it did." 

The advent of the Second World War 
brought with it a crisis of new respon- 
sibilities, the President stated. 

"Changed times brought change in the 
attitudes and roles of women, ' ' she said. 
"Mary Baldwin adapted its liberal arts 
curriculum to meet this cnsis. The thrust 
to reflect and prepare for career opporm- 
nities for women in the college curricu- 
lum began." 

MBC, said Dr. Tyson, "was a master 
of adaptability, practicality, and coura- 
geous nsk-taking. In this way it has al- 
ways grasped the present, fraught with 
problems as it may be, and shaped its 
own fumre. The evidence is that it has 
done so successfully." 

"If we now, in citing our fumre 
vision, think that we are specially to be 
commended or arc especially creative 
and inventive, I urge our modest hu- 
mility. For what may seem special is the 
routine business of this place: the nor- 
mality of its mode of resoureefiilness; its 
willingness to redeploy energies when 
service to society requires our adjust- 
ment; the energetic and healthy refusal to 
be other than successfiil; a dedicated 
determination to educate flexible, coura-

Dr. James D. Lott 
Named Dean of the College 

His colleagues frequently Idd Frank 
Pancake by calling hun Colonel Pan- 
cake, Ex-Mayor Pancake, Dr. Pancake, 
or any combination of the above. All of 
the appellations are accurate. 

Dr. Pancake was bom in Staunton, not 
far from Mary Baldwin, at a time when 
streetcars still served as public transpor- 
tation and ice was earned around in 
horse-drawn wagons. 

He graduated from Robert E. Lee 
High School, and by the time he gradu- 
ated at the top of his class from Virginia 
Military Institute four years later in 
1938, he had accumulated an impressive 
college record. 

After leaving VM.I., he entered 
flight training and became a pilot. He 
served in World War U, and was award- 
ed the bronze star. 

In 1950, Frank returned to his alma 
mater as Professor of Air Science and 
Tactics. The following year, at age 34, 
he was named Commandant of Cadets at 
V.M.I. , a post he held for three years. 

In 1954 Colonel Pancake entered the 
National War College, and iater served 
with NATO at the Supreme Headquar- 
ters m Europe. 

In the early '60s, Frank worked at the 
Pentagon, and in 1963 wentto Panama as 
Deputy Commander of U.S. Air Force's 
Southern Command. Here, he helped 
plan contingency operations that might 
involve U S forces n the region 

Col Pancake retired from the military 
on July 1 1966 leaving Panama and 

guest speakers representing different 
points of view would address the stu- 
dents on selected topics. 

Dr. Pancake enjoyed his years on the 
faculty, taking time dunng this penod to 
dabble in local politics. He ran success- 
fully for Staunton City Council and was 
elected mayor of his hometown. 

In addition to his teaching chores. 
Mayor Pancake also directed the Contin- 
uing Education program for its first three 
years, worked with the first Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Office, and merged 
that office with the extemship program. 

All this preceded a move to the Office 
of Development, where he became Di- 
rector of Planned Giving (later Capital 
Funds) in 1979. 

This job has taken him on the road, 
visiting Mary Baldwin's various con- 
stituencies and potential donors all over 
the country. On July 1 of this year. Dr. 
Pancake finally stepped down from full- 
time service at Mary Baldwin. 

He says he has enjoyed working for 
development, developing contacts and 
doing a lot of important cultivation for 
the College. He still, however, remem- 
bers his teachmg days fondly. 

"Each job in its own way has had its 
rewards," he says. "When I joined the 
faculty, though, I thought I had gone to 
heaven. I really enjoyed teaching." 

An active 70 (as any of his opponents 
on the tennis courts will attest to). Dr. 
Pancake resides with his wife, the former 
Grace George (GG) Koehler, among fur- 
; of world travels at 

his nauve Staunton He en 
tered graduate school at U.Va. and re- 
ceived his Ph.D. m June of 1969. 

That summer, after negotiations with 
Dean Martha S. Grafton, he joined the 
MBC faculty and with Dr. Robbins 
Gates, taught political science for the 
next decade. 

"I felt it was important for students to 
have an understanding of different points 
of view around the world," he says. "I 
used to take a group of students up to the 
United Nations every fall." 

At the U.N-, students would attend 
J of the General Assembly, and 

theit^st Beverly Sfreet residence. They 
have two. grown, children. 

He says he plans to remain active in 
local civic organizations, including the 
Historic Staunton Foundation and Staun- 
ton United Revitalization Effort, and 
does not mle out another run for City 
Council next year. He will also continue 
to do some part time consultmg work for 
Mary Baldwm through the end of the 
current calendar year. 

"GG and I have been thinking about 
doing some writing, one or both of us, " 
he says. "Otherwise, I plan to travel and 
play tennis."

'. Aima Marie "Sissy" Gardner '86 had 
two "openings" last April. She opened 
the spring meeting of the Board of Trust- 
ees, at their request, by describing her 
Russell Scholarresearch project. A week 
later she opened her play, "Such Tender 
Ties" in the Mary Baldwin College 

Miss Gardner' s proposal to the Russell 
Scholarship review cominitlee had been 
ambitious. She intended to translate an 
original French play to English and then 
direct its premiere performance. Now, 
for the alumna from Nacogdoches, 
Texas, the work is history. 

"I can't say it was as if I'd written the 
play," says the Russel Scholar for 
1985-86, "but I labored over it enough 
that sometimes I felt Like I did. " It took 
Sissy, a Phi Beta Kappa double-major in 

French and dieatre, seven months to 
translate the work. Mary Baldwin Col- 
lege French professor Charlotte Hogsett 
had "found" the play for Sissy after 
seeing it performed in Paris and obtain- 
ing a scnpt. 

The play is a series of episodic flash- 
backs depicting the relationship, over a 
40-year period of a mother and daughter. 
As Sissy overcame, day after day, the 
difficulties of translation, she recognized 
the power of the play. "It's very dis- 
turbmg to sit at the computer at 3:00 in 
the morning translating a French play 
and translate a line which is the exact 
same line you delivered to your own 
mother, — verbatim. Adds Terry South- 
erington, Mary Baldwin theatre pro- 
fessor, "That's what makes the play 
work. ' '

College by President Cynthia H. Tyson 
in May, assumed his new position on 
July 1.

was named Professor of English in 1976, 
and has served in numerous capacities, 
mcluding faculty marshal and Coordi-

advanced levels. 

He has taught literature and creative

Lott's most recent admim'strative and 
college work has included work as Chair- 
man of the Committee of Division Coor- 
dinators, as advisor to the College 
Review Board, and service on the Educa-

A writer of short fiction, Lott has been

But for Sissy to make the play work, 
there were many obstacles. The first had 
been overcome much earlier. She had 
transferred away from MBC during her 
sophomore year to a 113,000-smdent 
public amversity. It lasted only one se- 
mester. Professor Southerington says she 
was not too worried about the loss of one 
of her fine theatre majors: "Some peo- 
ple — you just have a feeling — they be- 
long here. They'll be back." 

Sissy discovered that she did not be- 
long at a school with "150 students in 
biology class and overwhelming bamers 
between students and professors." 

Now she credits Mary Baldwin with 
giving her the personal attention and 
support required to accomphsh her proj- 
ect. "Such Tender Ties" ran from April 
16 through 20 in the CoOins Theatre of 
Deming Hall. The show starred Mary 
Fuise '88 and Debbie Waenscfa '88. It 
received an enthusiastic and thoughtful 
response. SissyteUsof women who went 
home immediately and called their 
mothers to say, "I've been thinking 
about you and want you to know I love 

The polished performance gave little 
indication how difficult the play had 
been to produce. The flashbacks require 
the actresses to transform immediately, 
with virtually no change in set, costume, 
or makeup, from age 70 to 20 or from 6 to 
50. The play is demanding and even 
"scary," says Sissy.

Library Board, on the Board of Gov- 
ernors of Appalachian Peoples' Service 
Organization, and on the vestry of Em- 
manuel Episcopal Church. 

Dr. Ethel Smeak, who chaired the 
Dean Search Committee, praised Presi- 
dent Tyson's decision to appomt Lott to 
the post vacated a year ago by Irene 
W.D. Hecht. 

"Dr. Lott knows the College and he 
knows the students," said Dr. Smeak. 
"He knows where the problems are, and 
I believe he will be able to solve them. I 
believe he will bring leadership to that 
position in making us an outstanding 
educational institution."

summer, resulting in some important 
proposals to the faculty by fall. 

"This is a very exciting time at Mary 
Baldwin, and I'm happy to be part of an 
administration which is working cre- 
atively toward the fiiture," said Lott. 

"I have really enjoyed my role as a 
member of the faculty, and see this move 
as a change, but as a positive continu-

lege," he said.

MBC Teacher 
Program Goes to 
Head of the Class 

Spring break wasn't much of a vaca- 
tion for MBC's Education Department 
this year. Department members spent 
their "break" doing last minute prepara- 
tions for a three-day visit by a State 
Education Department Comminee, on 
March 10, 11, and 12. The Comminee's 
purpose — a 5-year reaccreditation of 
MBC's teacher education program. 

"They were the three most tense days 
of my Ufe," recalls Dr. Patncia Wesi- 
hafer. Assistant Professor of Education, 
of the visit. Ail the hard work paid off. 
Mary Baldwin's teacher education pro- 
gram was the only one of 15 reviewed 
this year to receive initial approval of all 

P4BC's Education Department has al- 
ways been excellent. One of its chief 
strengths is a firm foundation in the lib- 
eral arts. Students are required to com- 
plete the requirements for their major, 
specialized education course, and a rig- 
orous student teaching schedule. Mary 
Baldwin's program is so well respected, 
in fact, that smdents from W & L and 
Hampden-Sydney are sent here for all 
their teacher training. MBC also has a 
cooperative arrangement with UVA's 
School of Education, where our students 
receive graduate credit for courses they 
take at MBC. 

The review process began over a year 
ago. when MBC applied to the Virginia 
State Department of Education for reac- 
creditation. The State then appointed a 
review comrmttee, made up of college 
faculty, educators, and government per- 
sonnel. The committee's 

determine if MBC's teacher prep pro- 
gram complies with ail established state 

At the same time, MBC education 
faculty were preparing a 3" thick self- 
study report for committee review. Fac- 
ulty and students involved in the teacher 
education program were prepped by the 
Education Department to answer any 
questions the site reviewers might ask. 
As a firushing touch, "The Great Educa- 
tion Department Trivia Quiz" appeared 
in mailboxes with relevant facts and 

By March 10, everyone was prepared. 
"The neatest thmg about this experience 
was how the faculty and students pulled 
together," says Dr. Westhafer. She and 
Dr. Mary Irving, Director of the Teacher 
Education Program, recall how members 
of the MBC "family " phoned them 
throughout the ordeal to ask "Are you 
surviving?" Dr. Tyson, unable to be on 
campus on the first day, left a videotaped 
welcome. One thing that most impressed 
the committee was the President's strong 
support of the program. 

The review comrmttee left no stone 
unturned. They combed student folders, 
class syllabi, faculty vitae, interviewed 
smdents, admmistrators, and teachers. 
"They really cried to find something 
wrong," says Dr. Irving. 

When the Committee report came 
back a month later, it was clear the group 
had found everything right. The program 
received numerous commendations. The 
comrmttee was especially impressed by 
the amount of training smdents receive to 
work with exceptional students. The re- 
port summed up: "The members of the 
visiting committee commend Mary 
Baldwin College for all the good things 
being done in support of teacher educa- 
tion." One committee member con- 
firmed to Dr. Irving what we at MBC 
already know: "You have a beautiful 
campus, top notch departments, and su- 
perb students." 

Young Women in Science 

In addition to its regular schedule of 
summer programs, including the Gov- 
ernor's School for the Gifted, the Vir- 
ginia Music Camp and Elderhostels, 
Mary Baldwin is offenng a prestigious 
program for high school smdents this 

The Young Women in Science Pro- 
gram, in its first year, is a four-week 
program designed for advanced science 
smdents in Virginia high schools. 

High school principals across the 
Commonwealth were asked to submit a 
nomination for one outstanding rising 
senior, and 30 young women were se- 
lected from 80 nominees for the full 
scholarship program. Each scholarship is 
. $1,000. Thus far, scholarship grants 
have been received from Ethyl Corpora- 
tion, Newport News Shipbuilding and 

Drydock Company, Dupont, and 

The academic program consists of two 
courses. Organic Chemistry of Natural 
Products is taught by the program direc- 
tor. Dr. James Patrick, MBC Professor 
of Chemistry. Microbiology is taught by 
Dr. Lundy Pentz, MBC Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Biology. 

In addition to the intense amount of 
work and study involved, the students 
will also participate in athletic activities 
and a trip to Monticello, the home of 
Virginia scientist Thomas Jefferson. 

The program is expected to attract 
more and more top science students to 
Mary Baldwin's excellent programs of 
study in the sciences. It grew out of the 
Special Summer Science program, part 
of the Governor's School. 

New Trustees 

Two alumnae, Bertie Murphy Deming 
'46 and Leigh Yates Farmer '74 were 
elected as Trustees of the College at the 
April meeting of the Board of Tmstees. 

Bertie Murphy Deming, of Alexan- 
dria, Louisiana, has served four previous 
terms as a Trustee beginning in 1963. 
She has also been elected as the vice- 
chairman of the Board. 

Mrs. Deming attended Mary Baldwin 
for only two years, but was awarded an 
honorary degree from Mary Baldwin in 
1977. She served as nationaJ chairman of 
the $10 million New Dimensions cam* 
paign in the late seventies. The Deming 
Fine Arts Center is named in her honor. 

She is married to Dr. John W. Demmg 
and is the mother of four children. She is 
active m a number of cultural , social , and 
service organizations. 

Leigh Yates Farmer of Richmond, 
Virgima, will serve as Alumna Trustee 
for a five year term. She works for C&P 
Telephone Company where she is the 
manager of commercial customer bill- 
ing. She has been employed there since 

Leigh has served as President of the 
National Alumnae Association and held 
many other positions on the Alumnae 
Association Board of Directors. She was 
the first Annual Fund Phonathon Chair- 
man and was a member of the Presiden- 
tial Search Committee m 1985. 

Leigh is married to Stiiart Farmer, a 
broker with Scott and StrmgfeUow and a 
graduate of Hampden-Sydney College. 
They are expecting their first child in 

The College is most fortunate to have 
these dynamic and talented alumnae 
leading the College, as members of the 
Board of Trustees. 

Grafton Honored 

The 1986 Algernon Sydney Sullivan 
Award was presented to Dr. Martha 
Siackhouse Grafton, Dean of Mary 
Baldwin from 1936 until her retirement 
m 1969. 

President Cynthia H. Tyson presented 
the award to the Dean Emeritus, warning 
the audience that Mrs. Grafton would 
claim she didn't deserve the award and 
not to pay any attention to her. 

Dean Grafton did indeed say she tned 
unsuccessfully to turn down the award. 
She recalled with some pride that Mary 
Baldwin was the first women's college in 
Virginia to bestow the Sullivan Award, 
beginning in 1933. 

She stiessed, however, how much she 
appreciated the honor and left the crowd 
with "a gracious 'thank you'." 

The award is given annually in both 
smdent and non-smdent categones, hon- 
oring those who have exhibited nobility 
of character in serving college and

a theatre major, she knew she must di- 
rect. After a number of major roles dur- 
ing her years at Mary Baldwin, she had 
learned a great deal about acting. But, 
she says, "all those things didn't come 
home until I was on the other side." 

Sissy plans to pursue a masters degree 
of fine arts in drama after taking "some 
time off," doing some regional theatre,

The time off is well deserved. The 
typical Mary Baldwin theatre major, dur- 
ing her four years, acts in, produces, 
directs, and works backstage 20 plays, 
ranging from Shakespearen tragedy to 
modem farce to Gilbert and Sullivan. It 
is hard work to make the show look easy. 
Professors Virginia Francisco and South- 
erington, who advised Sissy Gardner in 
her project, believe that MBC's small 
size, and the breadth of activity it re- 
quires of theatre majors, give our grad- 
uates an edge on the competition after 

A statement by professor Southering- 
lon about the philosophy of Mary Bald- 
win theatre also describes Sissy Gard- 
ner's striking success: "You don't limit 
yourself to what you think you can do in 
the theatre. Because, chances are, if 
someone doesn't know she's limited, 
she's not."

began teaching Latin at Robert E. Lee 
High School. 

She was a popular teacher there for 45 
years, retiring in 1953. At that time, she 
moved to Waynesboro, where she made 
her home with her sister, Mrs. Gaines

she moved to Oak Hill.

(Editor's Note: The following are ex- 
cerpts from President Tyson's Inaugural 
Address, delivered May 10, 1986) 

A year of work has already been com- 
pleted, a year of experience as new col- 
leagues, of learning policies and prac- 
tices, a year of growing awareness, for 
me, of the unique circumstances of Mary 
Baldwin, a full aimual cycle of knowl- 
edge accumulated and perspectives 

I speak to you today, then, not only of 
plans and hopes for a future together 
shaped out of ^e enthusiasm of newness, 
but from the certainty of what has already 
been shaped. I speak, therefore, not of 
dreamed possibilities, but of real 

Support from all constituencies for the 
newly-defined goals of Mary Baldwin 
has been evidenced in daily terms. This 
support has transcended positive rhetoric 
and has produced results that a year ago 
seemed, in prospect, difficult to attain. 

To all of you, I express appreciation 

1 . A vision statement of college pri- 
orities, a philosophy to lead us to 1992, 
the year of our sesquicentennial, and 

2. An institutional plan reflecting 
those priorities. 

3. Plans to formulate our proposed 
capital campaign. 

4. A program for building, renova- 
tion, and utilization of presentiy unused 

5. A building plan for construction of 
much-needed smdent support facilities 

8. An administrative reorganization 
reflecting college pnorities. 

9. And, most important of all, a task 
force of faculty who are already engaged 
in academic planning of enormous 
ricular significance which will imple- 
ment programmatically the college'; 
philosophic identity as a liberal arts col 
lege offering career preparation in a vari- 
ety of disciplines. 

In adopting an assertive and creative 
stance, Mary Baldwin .College is doing 
no more than continuing its assertive and 
creative tradition. For herein lies the 
enduring stiength and adaptability ir 
face of challenge that has been its tra- 
dition since 1842. And herein lies the 
inspiration for present and future ac 

]ji accepting today the presidency of 
Mary Baldwin College, I pledge to you 
all my unwavering determination to stay 
on course.

Anne Pierce '70 
Monkeys Around 

"It'ssucha treat to come back here," 
says Anne Pierce of her first visit to the 
Mary Baldwin campus since she gradu- 
ated a year early in 1969. In the inter- 
vening years, she has traveled the world 
studying primates with some of the lead- 
ing figures in the field. 

The native of Farmville, N.C. ma- 
jored in biology at MBC, and following 
commencement pursued a year of gradu- 
ate work at the University of Southern 
Rorida at Tampa. 

"I knew I wanted to study primates," 
she says, and this she did. observing apes 
in captivity for two years at the Yerkes 
Regional Primate Research Center at 
Emory University in Adanta. 

After this stint, she took a one-year job 
as nursery supenntendent and assistant at 
Lion Country Safari in Adanta, where 
she was in charge of a menagerie of 
animals which included lions, chimps, 
goats, foxes and pigs. 

Knowing that she wanted to go to 
Africa, Anne saved her money for more 
than two years and bought a 'round the 
world ticket in May of 1973, touring 
Europe, Africa, Greece and the Middle 

In Tanzania, she went to see Jane 
Goodall's gorillas at Gombe Stream Na- 
tional Park and was asked by Ms. Good- 
all to stay on and study chimpanzees for 
10 months. She took up the offer, despite 
terrorist raids and kidnappings at the 

Her next job was at Stanford Univer- 
sity's Department of Psychiatry and Be- 
havioral Science, until the summer of 
1976, when she presented a paper to the 
International Primate Conference at 

"I then felt it was time to resume my 
formal education," says Anne. Numer- 
ous colleges and universities offered a 
variety of opportunities for study, but 
none of them, she said, suited her 

She worked in the adventure travel 
business, arranging trips to Alaska, the 
Himalayas and Colorado, and then re- 
turned to Africa to design programs for 
tourists in national parks. 

In 1981, she was asked to study goril- 
las in the mountainous Virunga Vol- 
canoes and Rwanda for a year. 

"I beat my chest and went," she says 
with a broad smile, "and had a wonder- 
ful time." 

It was during this time that she came to 
know the internationally known prima- 
tologist Diane Fossey. since 1967 the 
Director of die Karisoki Research Center 
in die altitudes of Mt. Visoki. 

"Diane Fossey became a confidante 
as well as a mentor and a teacher," she 

Tracking the mountain gorillas was 
rough work, in high altitudes, sliding 

through mud, up 12 kilometers and down 
eight. Uirough nettles and thistles. 

Having conquered the heights, she 
next went to West Africa to set up the 
Gabon Research Center smdying low- 
land gorillas in virgin temtory ("Goril- 
las are important to study no matter 
where they live"). 

Her friend Jane Goodall then asked her 
to set up a long-term study of chimpan- 
zees in captivity in the United States. 

"I spent two years working with stu- 
dent keepers, teaching behavioral meth- 
ods, observing, recording behaviour of 
chimps residing in zoos," she says. 

She and Dr. Goodall are going to Af- 
rica this summer to set up programs for 
tourists in chimp country. 

Anne is returning to Africa about 
seven months after an event which she 
still finds difficult to talk about: Diane 
Fossey was brutally murdered on Dec. 

"I cried for two days," she says 

Anne is very concerned about captive 
chimpanzee issues, and supports pro- 
grams which train zoo keepers and others 
in the United States to be better observers 
and make people better aware of the 
needs of these highly intelligent animals.

occasion of his retirement and go bird- 
watching with him one more time. 

As for the retiring professor, he is 
abundantly impressed with his former 

"She's very, very, good, and she 
works with some of the leading primatol- 
ogists in the world," Mehner said 

She adores her work, and is still eager 
to learn more, although she already 
knows a lot. 

"I've come into contact wiUi all die

Honored Dean Returns 

Among the celebrants attending the 
50th reunion of Mary Baldwin's Class of 
1936 this year was a woman who didn't 
graduate from MBC, but who holds the 
distinction of being one of the few hon- 
orary alumna in the history of the 

The 1936 Bluestocking contains the 
following dedication: "There is always 
one person in college life whom students 
lake as a model for their lives. At Mary 
Baldwin this person is one who through 
her grace of living has gained the respect 
and admiration not only of the student 
body but of every person who comes in 
contact with the school. Wherever she is, 
in years to come, she will remain in our 
hearts as the embodiment of the thing we 
hold closest to us — the Mary Baldwin 

She has remained in their hearts all 
these years, and they in hers, and the 
Mary Baldwin Spint which Elizabeth 
Pfohl Campbell embodied is one she 
helped to create. 

Elizabeth Pfohl graduated from Salem 
College in 1923 and received her Mas- 
ter's Degree in Education from Colum- 
bia University the following year. 

She taught at Salem Academy and 
College from 1924-27, and was Dean of 
Women at Moravian College for Women 
for one year before coming to Mary 
Baldwin as Dean of the College in 1929. 

When she first came to MBC, the 
College was still in a state of transition 
ft-om junior college (which it had been 
from 1916 to l923)tocollege,andinher 
own words, "I came to start student 

"The students jg_o k the business of 
starting their government very, very sen- 
ously," she recalled in a recent inter- 
view. "They were very cautious about 

She says the philosophy they tned to 
instill focused on the mdividual. 

"We thought thai the individual must 
be responsible for herself, but that she 
should also have the support of the Col- 
lege and her fnends." she says. 

"There was also a feeling that a 
graduate of Mary Baldwin was going out 
to be of service to her community," she 
says. It could take a lot of different 
forms, but the Mary Baldwin alumnae 
should make a difference where she 

Even though she is not a graduate of 
the College, the former Dean has cer- 
tainly lived up to the credo of community 

Mrs. Campbell was the first woman 
elected to the School Board in Arlington, 
VA., and served as its chairwoman for 
three one-year periods. 

While she was chairwoman of the Ar- 
lington School Board, Mrs. Campbell 
pushed to establish educational tele- 

vision in the Washington area. Mrs. 
Campbell believed that television could 
be a valuable tool of education and so 
when asked to become the first vice pres- 
ident (and later president) of the Greater 
Washington Educational Television As- 
sociation (GWETA), she accepted what 
was to become perhaps the greatest chal- 
lenge and certainly the greatest success 
of her career. 

After extensive fundraising, getting 
troublesome legislation rewritten and 
finding a tower and production center, 
Mrs. Campbell's dream became a real- 
ity. Washington's public television sta- 
tion, WETA, (Channel 26) went on the 
air October 2, 1961. 

Today, in its 25th anniversary year, 
WETA reaches more than 700,000 
households a week with its children!s 
cultural and public affairs' program- 
ming. And not all of WETA's commu- 
nity service is on die air. The station 
sponsors the Children's Art Festival, 
honors "Woman of Achievement" and 
is the only public broadcasting station in 
the country to offer minority producers a 
chance to develop programming. 

Mrs. Campbell has accumulated nu- 
merous awards for her work with 
WETA-TV including McCall's Golden 
Mike Award (1961), Marymount Col- 
lege Woman of die Year (1967), D.C. 
Federation of Women's Club Award for 
Leadership (1967) and Washingtonian of 
the Year (1977). 

Mrs- Campbell and her husband Ed- 
mund C. Campbell, great-grandson of 
MBC founder Rufus W. Bailey, cele- 
brated their fiftieth wedding anniversary 
on June 15^Thej;_o.upJe hay,e.been geoer^^ 
ous supporters of die College over the 
years and were on hand for Alumnae 
Homecoming this year, staying with 
dieir good friends die Graftons. 

"Martha Grafton and I were the be- 
girming of Mary Baldwin as a mature 
college for women," she says of the 
woman who would succeed her as Dean 
and hold the post for 33 years. 

"We both believe that women's col- 
leges give opportunities for women to 
develop skills and leadership potential 
they may or may not be able to develop in 
a coeducational institution," she says. 

"Mary Baldwin is very special in my 
heart," says Mrs. Campbell. "When 1 
went to die Alumnae Association meet- 
ing, I felt I saw there in those women 
some of the very things we worked for. 
The individual is very important." 

She was very pleased that the Class of 
1936 boasted such a large attendance diis 

"So many from this class were here," 
she says. "They have always showed 
affection and support for one another, 
and what we all have accomplished is 
something very special." 

Oldest Alumna Remembers MBC 

When Margaret Eakle came to Mary 
Baldwin Seminary as a day student in 
1902, Theodore Roosevelt had been 
president of the United States for less 
than a year, and King Edward VII sat on 
the throne of England. 

Now, in good spirits and with a re- 
markable memory , she is. at age 103 , the 
oldest known Mary Baldwin ^duate 
still living - 

Another MBC alumna, Elizabeth Nel- 
son Fenwick '43. does volunteer work 
each week at Oak Hill Nursing Home, 
and interviewed Miss Margaret, as she is 
affectionately known, for this article. 

Miss Margaret was bom on January 
19_ 1883 — the birthdate, she still likes to 
point out, of Robert E. Lee. and hardly a 
decade after the great general had died. 

One of four children, she was raised 
near New Hope until the age of seven 

when, in 1890, she moved to Staunton to 
live with an aunt. 

She attended public schools, gradu- 
ating from Lee High and going on to 
Mary Baldwin Seminary as a day 

"I used to huny down the length of 
Augusta Street and die Prospect Street 
hill to get to math class by 9 a.m.," she 

Her memones of Mary Baldwin are 
those of a bygone era , indeed . Mary Julia 
Baldwin herself had been dead just five 
years when Miss Margaret entered the 
seminary; there was no Academic Build- 
ing, and the campus was confined to a 
fraction of the land it now occupies. 

She does remember "the long steps to 
Hilltop" (few graduates have forgotten 
them), "the dogs" (not yet christened 
Ham and Jam), commencement exer- 

cises in the old chapel, and her "brand 
new white graduation dress." 

Miss Margaret also recalls a history 
teacher, one of two sisters who taught at 
the seminary, whose final exam con- 
sisted of one question on die Civil War 
which covered a chalk board that ran 
around two sides of the room. 

Day students then had a special en- 
trance to the school, on New Street. May 
Day was not observed at that time, at 
least not widi the court and May Queen 
and all the dippings, but Miss Margaret 
does recall attending May Day celebra- 
tions at the Virgima School for die Deaf 
and the Blind. 

After receiving her diploma in 1905, 

she attended three summer sessions at 

U.Va., and eventually received her 

teaching certificate. She taught primary

Talent has a way of identifying other 
talent. And that was certainly the case 
when Lindsay Ryland Gouldthorpe was 
nominated to the Alumnae Board by for- 
Alumnae Association President 
Leigh Yates Farmer. It was a natural 
progression that Lindsay would also be 
elected President of the Alumnae Asso- 

In Lindsay Gouldthorpe's case, the 
talent is deep and diversified. A Vice- 
President of Operations Administration 
with Sovran Bank in Richmond, Vir- 
ginia, Lindsay has had a most successful 
:r in banking since graduating from 
Mary Baldwin in 1974. In fact, she was 
hired by Sovran Bank for their manage- 
ment training program as a result of an 
on-campus interview during her senior 

Since joining Sovran, she has worked 
as an assistant branch manager, branch 
manager, credit analyst, and in branch 
operations across the state. 

Lindsay took a short break from Sov- 
ran Bank from 1981-82 when she and her 
husband, Hugh, moved to Yardley, 
Pennsylvania. While there, she worked 
for the New Jersey National Bank in 
Trenton. New Jersey, as coordinator of 
branch operations. 

A history major at Mary Baldwin, 
Lindsay also has an M.B.A. from the 
University of Richmond. 

In describing her banking career, 
Lindsay said, "The field of banking is 
always changing and therefore never 

"I am looking forward to my term as 
President of the Alumnae Association. 1 
have always enjoyed the opportunity to 
get to know and work with many differ- 
ent women from varied backgrounds 
whose common bond is Mary Baldwin 
College^ In my work with the Richmond 
Alumnae Chapter and on the Alumnae 
Board, I have already experienced some 
of this. I feel that as President I'll have 
even more opportunity." 

Lindsay has some personal goals as 
President which mclude visiting as many 
alumnae chapters around the country as 
possible, but " 'naturally, it will be easiest 
to travel to those chapters around the 
state. But because I also travel to other 
states with my job, I hope to be able to 
combine some Mary Baldwin and bank- 
ing work." She also enjoys applying the 
management skills she has developed 
through her career in the volunteer envi- 

Specific goals for the Alumnae Asso- 
ciation are to double the gross sales vol- 
ume of the Vfrginia Sampler project, 
thus resulting in more scholarship 
awards. Lindsay has been involved with 
the Virginia Sampler since its inception 
during the time she served as Vice 
President for Finance on the Alumnae 

Her second goal is to broaden the 
fttimework to help alumnae take a t 
active role in the recruitment of students 
for the College. "Talented high scbool 
girls are all around us. Every alu 
knows at least one high school juni< 
senior that could benefit from a Mary 
Baldwin education. It is simply a matter 
of increasing their awareness about the 
importance of helpmg the College in this 
area. I feel that diis is an area that we are 
just not taking advantage of at this 

Lindsay is also interested in exploring 
new options to mcrease the annual gifts 
of alunmae to the College, both in dollars 
and in the percentage of donors.^ 

The fourth major area is that of die 
Connections project. "The time is right 
to expand the Mary Baldwin Connec- 
tions project to include career network- 
ing and counseling. Our chapter network 
is growmg stronger annually, and pro- 
viding a career network within this chap- 
ter network can only help to strengthen it 
more. With the establishment of the 
Rosemarie Sena Center for Career and 
Life Planning, it is only natural that the 
Alumnae Association should support and 
contribute to the programs that will be 
offered by die Sena Center for smdents 
and alumnae." Continued on p. 7

Externing with the President 

President Reagan's travel is in good 
hands, Mary Baldwin hands. In May of 
this year, Adair Lewis '89 of Greenville, 
Virginia competed with 25 other candi- 
dates from around the country for a sum- 
mer extemship in the White House Ad- 
vance Office. 

She was one of three college students. 
the others from Harvard and Washington 
State, chosen, Adair's reaction: "Abso- 
lutely unbelievable," 

Her 10-, II- and 12-hour days in the 
Old Executive Office Building are 
shared with mentor Marylou Skidmore, a 
1979 graduate of Mary Baldwin. Mary- 
lou has been working with the Reagan- 
Bush administration since 1984 and orig- 
inally notified the College of the 
possibility of an extemship for just the 
right person. As Marylou remarked to 
President Tyson: "1 am very proud to 
have a young woman from Mary Bald- 
win working as an intern with us." 

Adair sees President Reagan occasion- 
ally {"he looks even better in person than 
on television") and has met Nancy Rea- 
gan. When the Reagan's make a public 
appearance, it is Marylou and Adair's 
office which handles all the plans and 
arrangements — down to the last detail. 
The final product of their work is a min- 
ute-by-minute schedule for the Presi- 
dent, which can run up to several hun- 
dred pages for an international trip. The 
young, energetic staff — most in their 
20's — work as a team, with the extems 
being important players. 

Adair's role is simple — she and her

two extern colleagues do everything. 
They are involved in every aspect of the 
office's management. Their pnze plan is 
actually going on the road for one week 
in advance of the President "putting into 

action what we learned". 

Adair's trip was to Dothan, Alabama 
— ^^"very, very much Reagan country" 
— the peanut capital of the world and she 
and her entourage spent 10 days in Do- 

than preparing for a I V^ hour visit by the 

An entire communications and secu- 
rity system had to be set up, and the 
advance staff did everything from 'plan- 
ning the motorcade route to distributing 
flags to spectators: About 2.000 people 
came to a luncheon to hear Reagan speak 
on tax reform. Adair recalls that despite 
the fact that the visit totally disrupted 
citizens lives, Dothan was very proud. 
"People started crying when the Presi- 
dent walked in." she remembers, "and 
he received a standing ovation." 

Working in Washington is exhilar- 
ating, says the English and Spanish ma- 
jor, but the commuting and the crowds 
are a big adjustment. She is living with 
her brother and his wife in Arlington, 
Va-. and rides the Metro. As for social 
life this summer, Adair says, "The job is 
my life." 

Adair has found she's learned a lot 
about the "real world" this summer. She 
says Marylou and her staff make a huge 
effort to include the extems in every- 
thing. "My work has made me under- 
stand the word professional" she ex- 
plains, adding, "I'm especially pleased 
to see that professionals remain civil 
under the worst of circumstances." 

Marylou is extremely proud of the 
work of her fellow MBC'er. "I want to 
make sure that other Mary Baldwin stu- 
dents get this opportunity," she stresses. 
Who knows, the first woman President 
may very well be a Mary Baldwin
